We stayed one night in a studio which was good value compared to other motels. We were only really there to sleep so everything was fine, wifi worked well and we had off road parking too. For backpackers this is a great choice.

As soon as we arrived the people at the front desk were extremely helpful and showed us to our room. As soon as we arrived we booked in for another 3... More

Nice and clean hostel, well located in Rotorua. There's free wifi (1gb per guest), which is rare in New Zealand, and a good kitchen that also serves as common area. The only thing is that the dorm is a bit small, and it could use more power sockets (only 2 for 4 people). But if you just want to have... More

We stayed two nights at this backpackers. The rooms are very small. The bathroom and kitchen were ok and very clean. After checking out we were waiting right outside for the bus. After 20min i went back to use the bathroom ones more. They didnt allow it :-( !

Stayed here 2 nights with my gf in a room with bunk beds. Everything is clean, the receptionist was nice, it's quiet at night, and there was parking for my car. The price was cheap too. Would recommend!

Hygienic and well maintained, but the double shared facilities room was only 6m squared! Just enough room for the double bed and for the door to open. Walls are paper thin so bring earplugs. Bed is comfortable enough and location is very central. If you need a cheap place to stay for one or two nights this place would be... More

The motel has very small rooms, but at least it is tidy. The owner is very accommodating and nice. There is free parking on site, however not enough during peak periods. There is free wifi. It is a short walk from shops, restaurants and Rotorua i-Site.
